Manufactured since 2014, Watupá-e 2022 is now fully Mil compliant, with a new aramide reinforced highly rugged, resilient airframe, with very low detection signature, and a new (optional) low-noise engine with a quasi-stealth propeller (patent pending).
The new 2022 airframe design has:
- A 73% increase in payload capacity (volume and weight), exceeding any competitor in its category.
- Higher endurance of up to 6 hours.
- Sturdy structure for deep stall belly-landing on the most rugged surfaces.
The reliability and simple logistics of Watupá-e makes it the best platform for mobile operations in harsh environmental conditions. This airframe can carry up to 2.5kg of payload, in a 700mm x 200mm x 150mm compartment.
